Pretty Parrot

A pretty parrot feasts on a pod (Purple Bahunia tree). At a park near my home. They are thronging the place just now, as the trees are loaded with pods! Lovely sight.

Have you seen birds get a ‘talking to’—from another?


Caught these two poor Rose-ringed Parakeets getting a raucous talking-to from an Asian Male Koel.

Initially, the koel seemed to have a point to make—about their joining his meal without announcement. The parrots remained subdued.

The nice part, however, is that the three were soon eating together from the same pile of cooked rice, with no acrimony, whatsoever.

We do have a lot to learn from these fellows, what say?
